There's a bank holiday here today so the extended weekend is being spent building a small extension to our beach house. I'm neither a framer or a carpenter so don't tease :D

This trees is lovely

Oh well... been building for 5 months (and years before that) without any injuries - today my finger made friends with the table saw so won't be doing much for the next couple of weeks. My Fullcounts will have to make do with some sofa fades.

Good thing is, it could have been MUCH worse.

My sympathies @Ar_thor i did something equally as stoopid a few years ago resulting in a partial amputation of my right index finger because the bone was shattered and exposed.. luckily Sheffield has some of the best orthopedic surgeons in the country due to it's history of finger injuries from climbing in the nearby Peak District and it's industrial past so they managed to do a fantastic job of rebuilding my finger..albeit half an inch shorter than it was before.

I had my left ring finger tip ripped almost clean off playing (American) football over ten years ago, luckily they were able to reattach it.
Best of luck recovering, it's a pain in the ass. Especially when you're left handed!

Made it up into the mountains this week for the season's first real hike—still snowy, but plenty warm during the days!

No trails to be seen, yet, but we did run into a few sign posts confirming we were about where we expected to be…

Ended up at Emigrant Lake by the end of the second day—or what will be Emigrant Lake in another few weeks

Managed to find a patch of dry ground big enough to pitch camp, and grilled some fresh green onions 'til sweet to have for dessert

Hiked out on Friday through the back side of a ski resort, taking advantage of the packed groomed trails left over from ski season to make it up to a ridge running parallel to our path in, which afforded us some much lusted-after dry ground to walk on for the last few miles

@julian-wolfIt's been so beautiful over here and I've been itching to go hiking. I think it's time to start planning the first one of the season after seeing your post... beautiful scenery over there.

@Suitedupmon, where are you? Definitely worth getting out there ASAP if weather allows…nothing like starting the season early and strong

Yeah, it's incredibly stupid - especially since I'd taken the blade guard off. Keep the blade guard on when sawing kids!

Luckily it was just flesh wound in my case. Took a good chunk off but didn't touch the bone and the nerves seem alright. The finger will probably get a strange shape but I can live with that. As mentioned earlier I got incredibly lucky all things considered. I got a pretty good scare though and probably learned my lesson. The good thing is that experiences like this gives food for thought and acts as a reminder of all the good things in life.

Very impressive rebuild of the finger, if you hadn't mentioned it I wouldn't have noticed the difference in length. Might as well be a case of slightly different hand shapes

Again, it's extremely impressive what medical science can achieve these days. Luckily I'm right handed so I'll be able to cope just fine but it's still a hassle to do ordinary things that requires two hands like tie your shoe laces or button your jeans.

I'm in central NJ. I usually go into DE, PA or upstate NY for hiking/camping.

Neat—I've never spent time in the back country over there, but from what I've seen on day trips it seems like it must be beautiful. When you make it out, you should take some photos to share! Would be interested to get a view of what it's like.

One benefit to lockdown: plenty of time to practise wanky latte art with the coffee machine. Feat OA01s.

Getting bored during lockdown, wanking and emptying ya bag is the general topic I think.

Planning on a celebratory wank when Cummings steps down. Doesn’t look like it’s happening any time soon.

@Kit Carruthers Our wardrobe have a lot in common. I guess if we meet up some days we could be wearing the same outfit ahaha

@unders Yeah, I wouldn't hold your breath (or anything else) just yet; having just suffered through that wanker's press conference, the take-away seems to be 'cummings not going'.

@Collin there's definitely more than a little overlap isn't there?

Only thing ive done today is make some trellis for my shed out of a couple of bits o' 1/4ply... nailed 2 strips together, drilled some holes through them and shaped the top.

Im training this clematis to climb up the handrail and over the shed

..bent a couple of coppice branches while they were still green to span the gap

^ The main thing I'm taking away from that post is how nice the oxidation is around the nails on your shed door—it's great to see how far it bleeds down through the grain below each one, especially compared to how little it bleeds on the rest of the shed where the grain's horizontal

Down with paint, down with shingles: raw wood's just as special as raw denim

I like it too, when we first moved in, the front of the shed was really sun bleached, it gets the sun from dawn till 4pm, i didn't want to alter the way it looks but i did want to protect it from the elements somewhat so i painted it with this oil...

IMG_9477

.. the sides of the shed which are in the shade still look brand new so i thought i would leave them be.

Social distancing in a different place today... through the pine trees to the beach on the north west coast with the crew

One of our favourite places for a simple day out - jumping off the sand dunes, football on the beach, strolls in the fresh sea air, picnics and what not...
